It has begun, begun in the dark
darkness that deepens till dawn
dawn loosening light that wakes
wakes within the sleeping world
worlds, all seamless as dreams
dreaming wave on wave of light
light fading then back into night

Solstice Time Lapse Alaska

Make Fudge While The Sun Shines
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 regular marshmallows (not minis)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 cup (8 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Grease or line an 8x8-inch pan with nonstick foil.
(use glass pans if you have)
Set aside.
In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, milk, marshmallows, butter, and salt.  Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is bubbling.  Boil and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in chocolate until completely melted. Add walnuts and vanilla.  Spread into the prepared pan and cool for 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator before cutting.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
